Judge Rules Ann Arbor Public Schools Can Ban Guns

Michigan’s open-carry gun laws are under criticism following a decision from the Washtenaw County Circuit Court. The ruling allows Ann Arbor Public Schools to continue banning firearms from its properties, striking down a lawsuit filed by open-carry advocates. Jim Makowski is the attorney for Michigan Gun Owners Incorporated. He says the lawsuit stems from a parent who fears the new rules would prohibit him from carrying his licensed weapon.

The Ann Arbor Public School board issued three new policies, the sum total of which banned firearms from property owned by Ann Arbor Public Schools and that is in direct contravention to state law which states that a local unit of government cannot, in any way, regulate firearms.”
